Attic Projects

A live graphic novel presented through dance, theatre, and animation, exploring the roles of hero and villain in contemporary culture in an era where your 15 minutes of fame is often followed by a lifetime of infamy. In a world of Twitter wars, cycling news feeds and cancel culture, come explore the myths and legends we create, destroy and forget in the rise and fall from viral fame to infamy — all within the course of any given week. With a multi-screen installation by video artist David Fishel, this dance-theatre performance weaves a tale of mysterious characters, conflicted heroes, innocent bystanders and big, big bad guys.

★★★★☆

Video projections create a live comic book, framing the immediately familiar goodies and baddies. But it’s a dichotomy that is slowly unpicked through slick visuals, well-judged choreography and engaging performances.
